    That's a lot of effort for not much payoff!

    Don't want to cheer anyone up, but it's unlikely to ease up as well. All the signs are that
    we will have more snow and icy cold winds for five days viz: from the 17th to the 21st inclusive, which means
    for the same reason the Norwich game was off, the home game against Millwall could well be in jeopardy.
    Only good thing is, that George Spicer will get to build more of his Snowpeople and eat more home made scones
    and wash it all down with large glass of mulled wine.

    If they pull another Saturday game I might well spontaneously combust...

    I’m stuck on my way to work. Set off at half 6 from Leeds to Bradford. Too far to walk in either direction. Sat in fancy dress of 250 paper butterflies for my outfit for World Book Day that I had to get up at 5am to attach. No money as forgot my purse. Oh and desperate for a pee!

    I once peed on the back lawn of my girlfriend June's house. My name was written
    neatly in the thick carpet of snow covering the grass. I thought I'd got away with it, until
    her Dad realised that the message was in his daughters handwriting.!

    Wouldn't trust any weather report for that far away. As for Millwall the current forecast is rain and decent temperatures

    Set off to work at 6am and passed 4 accidents between Ward Green and Carlton . There was one on Alhambra roundabout, the two blokes involved were stood 'ON' the roundabout after the accident talking on their mobiles . I hope they had their shin pads on !

    Met office suggesting otherwise.

    Top weather local forecaster on ITV's Good morning predicted it and so far his
    previous forecasts have been pretty accurate. He also tipped that Summer 2018 will
    feature heavy rain. He'll be back on in June to see how sucessful his advice has been.

    It's hardly a massive insight to predict rain for the UK in rains almost every summer.

    The BBC forecast is showing it to get milder with some rain. Norwich and Millwall should be on easy.

    But what they fail to mention is that the long term forecasts are not based on anything that they can see now at all. They are simply somebody looking at history and saying "the last time we had snow in march it was rainy in July". Basically hoping that history repeats itself.

    As for short term forecasts they use data that can be seen right now. Pressure, wind speeds, temperature in other areas, rainfall in other areas etc. From that they can calculate how the weather will move within the next few days. This expert only has access to the same data as there but in order to get TV time he has to go against the grain and again he throws in patterns from the past. If he said 'its going to be a bit meh' he wouldn't get on TV. To get on TV you need sensationalism and that's what he gets. In my experience he's been right no more than everyone else but much like a psychic he words things very cleverly so that he can say he was right.

    Yesterday's online forecasts for Harrogate - bit damp, cloudy, plus several degrees above freezing.

    This morning's picture - heavy snow coming down until about 1000. I had to shift about two inches of the stuff off my car windscreen before I could get going and the roads were pretty much like last week. Only going to my dentist though - I could have walked but what the hell :)

    Picture now at just after midday - massive thaw and the roads are clear again. Stupid weather!!

    He was like the old boy Bill Foggitt, in that he uses the local flora and fauna to try to make his
    predictions. He was quite entertaining. When describing his forecast for the Summer he used the
    words "spits and farts" to describe the rain and winds he was saying could occur.
    Only time will tell if his predictions have any credibility. Whatever happens he managed to get another paid
    gig in June to come back on TV to see if he was right, adding creedence to the saying " you can't pillock a good pillocker".

    The only thing you can be sure of is that there will be some imminent weather.
    Oh, and does anybody else think the BBC's "new improved" weather maps are rubbish?
